Who isn't super excited for Anchorman 2? The follow-up to the cult classic that helped solidify the movie careers of Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, and Judd Apatow is filming as we speak.

Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Blade Runner... Anchorman?

Production on the much-anticipated comedy sequel is already underway, but since filming began last week, four new names have been added to the cast, including John C. Reilly and Meagan Good.

For will play a legendary newscaster, a la Tom Brokaw (who Ford could easily play in a biopic), though plot details are scarce at the moment. What we do know is that the main arc of the film is that Ron Burgundy will be vying for a job in New York City on a 24-hour cable news network.

All your favorites from the first film are returning, including Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, Christina Applegate, and David Koechner. Also joining on is comedic juggernaut Kristen Wiig, playing a love interest to Carell's Brick Tamland.

Anchorman 2 is set to hit theaters December 20. While you wait, just relax with a nice cool beverage. But not milk. Milk would be a bad choice.

A long-awaited Anchorman sequel has been confirmed by Will Ferrell, in character as Ron Burgundy on Conan! What better way to make an announcement, right?

Clad in his character's signature wine-colored suit, Ferrell appeared on Conan last night to say that he and Paramount came to terms on a sequel to Anchorman.

Both Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) and Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) are slated to return along with Ron, according to reports, though they did not appear last night.
